Chris: "You're an Angel of Death."
Clarence: "Yours is a unique situation, Chris. One which requires special handling. That's why I wanted to meet you early. So you could get to know me, trust me. There's really nothing to be afraid of."
Chris and Clarence discussing his identity.[src]

Clarence is an Angel of Death who was meant to take the soul of Chris Halliwell as he started fading out of existence due to his parents not having conceived him yet.


As Chris was a special case, Clarence felt that special handling was required. For this reason, he went undercover as a janitor at P3.

During their talks, Clarence tried to get Chris to enjoy his life more often. When the time was right, Clarence wanted to take Chris away, though he refused and left. After Chris was conceived, Clarence went to visit him one last time to wish him "good luck" and talked him out of wasting his second chance. Chris asked him why he encouraged him to enjoy his days; Clarence answered it was just in case Chris survived.

Notes and Trivia[]

  • Due to scheduling conflicts, Simon Templeman was unavailable to reprise his role of the Angel of Death, resulting in Lou Beatty Jr. portraying the part.
  • The appearance of Clarence is not fully explained in the universe, as earlier episodes strongly suggested, though not confirmed, there was only one Angel of Death. Although later Piper Halliwell temporarily became one of the Angels of Deaths, which implies that the main Death is able to create assistants if necessary.
  • Clarence's dark wisping effect is uniquely different from the blue glow that the Angel of Death and Piper demonstrated.
  • Since Angels of Death could make themselves visible to those whose souls they were about to collect, it was possible Clarence only appeared to Chris when he was alone.


Clarence appeared in a total of 1 episode throughout the series.
